Preparing Your Property for the Snow: Get It Done Early

As a resident of Maryland, you are well aware that we are not spared from the coastal cold of the winter. While the cold can have a negative effect on your property, with frost-killing plant material, and grass growing dormant, snow may be worse. Layering your property with a thick coat of white, snow can hurt the functionality of your property. Denying access to your place of business to both workers and potential customers alike, snow can quite literally put a stop to your business. It can even prevent you from leaving your own home, and increases outdoor safety risks exponentially. To avoid this issue, it is important to have a snow removal company on retainer, quick to clear your property in the event of a storm. The sooner you can get your property back to normal, the better. However, many snow removal companies, like OakLawn, are quickly filling up their winter roster. This means that now is the time to get your snow removal situated before those first winter storms take their toll. Here are a few of the benefits snow removal can have on your property.


Making Safety a Priority

The primary reason that any snow removal is done is to mitigate the safety risk faced by those entering your property. Whether it be a slip and fall, or damage to a vehicle, snow and ice can be very dangerous. Many of the safety risks present during a winter storm can be a liability to you as the property manager or owner. Avoiding this liability, and the possibility of a lawsuit, a quickly cleared property will clearly show your efforts to create a safe environment. Giving you peace of mind, you will know that your property will be in the safest of conditions when cleared in a timely manner.


Curb Appeal Attracts Attention

While at OakLawn, safety always comes first, it would be a travesty to overlook the snow removal benefits to the look of your property. When covered in snow, your luxurious landscape investments cannot be seen. The sooner your property is cleared, the more your property will stand out in the crowd, full of properties yet to be serviced. This will increase the visibility of your trees, shrubs, and greenery, for those just passing by. Additionally, as your treated ice begins to melt, your hardscapes will be seen, looking safe and ready for use.


Speed of Service

When it comes to snow removal, speed is the name of the game, as the sooner your property is able to be used, the quicker the aforementioned benefits are able to be reaped. With a commercial landscaping company providing these services, you will be utilizing an experienced snow removal team possessing all the required resources to clear your property on a tight schedule. This includes commercial grade snow removal equipment, rather than simple shovels. This should be a high priority when choosing a snow removal team, as time is of the essence. Consider OakLawn for speed, as our trucks and plows are always ready to go at a moment’s notice.


Commercial Specific: Increase Income

Simply put, the sooner your property is ready to use, the sooner capital continues to flow. With an experienced team like OakLawn, you can expect your property to be taken care of quickly, and to high standards of quality. When your customers see how quickly you have made sure their experience on your property is safe, their likelihood of doing business increases exponentially. Not to mention, if you are managing an office park, allowing business to continue rapidly for your tenants is a great way to keep them happy.
